Went to PT yesterday. Seeing some real progress on my shoulder mobility. Which is a good thing to see. I also got a fancy pulley to do shoulder work every day. It’s super low-tech, but the technology / mechanics of it seems to have withstood the test of time. They haven’t even upgraded the box design – that’s how confident they are in the technology 🙂
Actual box for the pulley that I received in 2014.
After a lot of thought and discussion, I’ve decided to take the next month off from Crossfit. My shoulder has been out of whack for so long, I am completely out of balance. When I do workouts, the balance is so off, I inevitably injure some other part of my body. I am going to take this next month to focus on rehabbing my shoulder and come back to Crossfit more balanced and ready to start getting back into a fit CrazyCatfitter. This isn’t to say that I won’t be updating my blog, but just wanted to make people aware.
Also, as a side – between now and PAX East (April 11th – April 13th) I am going to be really focused on that show and prep for it. That also has a wee bit to do with my decision as well. #priorities
On an unrelated topic, one of my bestest pals lives in San Francisco. Post college, we lived near each other in Los Angeles. She would come over and my cat, Feynman (the orange one, for those keeping score) wasn’t particularly nice to her. This re-enforced her hatred of cats. Then, a couple of years ago, when I was in SF on business, we grabbed dinner and she told me about her new boyfriend. She told me that he had two cats and that might be a deal breaker. Since then, she has not only moved in with the boy, she has also become a crazy cat lady like me! This is a text conversation we recently had:
Yes, we both, not knowing the other did, got some matching Vans sneakers. Here’s a picture of them close up so you can see just how much of a Crazy Cat Lady she has become. She loves her cats, Selah and Dr. Sax. We FaceTime a lot so we can see each other’s cats. #besties
Epic kicks, yo. We both own these. MEOW.
